During her time on Bonaire Karol hosted several activites:

  • Freediving clinics (International Certification)
  • Adventure freedives
  • Speech at Buddy Dive pool bar
  • Workshops “Breath and Apnea Tips”

Karol has, each year, provided a opportunity for students in Bonaire to increase their knowledge of freediving, and in the future the idea is to also offer the more advanced levels of training, providing people a safe way to learn and improve their freediving skills.

Amongst her students this year, she taught Jonathan Birds, Emmy Award winning producer and underwater cinematographer.

“I have been diving for almost 25 years now, so it’s rare for a dive trip to completely change my perceptions of the sport.” (Jonathan Birds words)

Karol Meyer was also invited to filming for his program called “Jonathan Bird’s Blue World” showing the amazing Bonaire underwater world during her Freediving Clinic and Adventures.
